This hopefully very fascinating page of a vast variety of radio recordings I have been making between 2012 and 2016 (up to Icelandic recordings completed 18 December 2016). With the end of 2016 came the completion of this album and thence will begin "Auroral Chorus VII: Upward Spiral" coming later in 2017. I am fascinated by all kinds of electromagnetism, and consider natural radio to be "primordial radio" or "elemental radio" and the sounds of planet Earth...

On the weekend of March 24th to the 26th of 2000, Three intrepid radio-enthusiasts ventured into the Mojave National Preserve and set-up a 20-watt shortwave transmitter (AM) - an old TCS-13 built in 1944, along with a huge battery and an inverter, as well as an end-fed antenna wire.

Relatively few people, aside from radio "DXers" (people whom enjoy a pastime/hobby of pursuing long-distance radio reception by various signal-propagation means) know that FM broadcast radio stations, and also television broadcast stations, can "propagate" for extraordinary long-distances at certain times of the year and are not simply limited to "line-of-sight" reception. This is particularly true during the DXer's local summertime period, when the ionesphere can... Topics: DX, FM DX, TV DX, sporadic-E skip, long-distance radio reception, Es

ELECTROMAGNETIC SMOG I: MICROWAVE EMISSION SOUNDS Even in rural locations we are plagued with an ever-increasing amount of microwave "smog" emanating from a multitude of electronic devices such as microwave oven (leakage) signals; wi-fi; cellular/mobile phones and associated base-station cell-towers; bluetooth; and various radar emissions ranging from law-enforcement radar to maritime (radar on boats and ships) and aeronautical radar installations - both ground-based and onboard...
